TORONTO, – NAPA AUTOPRO and MV-1 Canada are teaming up to meet the specific needs of wheelchair users and the people who transport them.
MV-1 Canada is the exclusive Canadian distributor of the MV-1, the first factory-built mobility vehicle engineered from the ground up for wheelchair accessibility. The MV-1 provides an affordable, accessible vehicle to fleets, municipalities and individuals with physical disabilities and their families.
With this agreement, NAPA AUTOPRO will now provide MV-1 warranty service and maintenance to MV-1 customers with the trust and quality care it is known for.
Typically new vehicle companies associate with a national car dealership to handle sales, distribution and servicing. MV-1 Canada has approached this model differently, separating sales from maintenance and warranty service.
“This innovative arrangement between NAPA AUTOPRO and MV-1 Canada changes how the MV-1 will be serviced in Canada” says John Walsh, CEO of VPG, Vehicle Production Group, the United States manufacturer of the MV-1. “I am very excited and proud of Canada’s unique approach”.
By uniting with NAPA AUTOPRO,MV-1 customers will receive first class maintenance & repair at convenient locations all across Canada. “NAPA is very excited to have selected locations certified to provide warranty service, parts and maintenance for the MV-1 in Canada” says Chris Thorne, NAPA AUTOPRO National Director. The MV-1 is a great vehicle that is really improving the quality of life for people with disabilities and those who care for them”.
